    Nice to hear an unknown composer (apologies to Mat)

    I'm sure our esteemed friend Mat will know of this composer, but he was a revelation to me. Just been listening to his violin concerto. Need to hear more of his music, now!

    Karłowicz Violin Concerto in A, Op 8 - Konstanty Kulka, v; Warsaw National Phil Orch/Witold Rowicki
    Olympia OCD 304 29'09
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.
    —Albert Einstein.

    Ah, good old Karłowicz. His violin concerto is a beauty, that's for sure.

    You might also try listening to his symphonic poems, for example Stanisław i Maria Oświecimowie and Odwieczne Pieśni.

    Good rendition choice. These are top-shelf Polish musicians.

    Yes!!! Another wonderful discovery - Its what makes MIMF the superfantabulous place it is...
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."
